U of I to graduate 550 students Saturday

MOSCOW, Idaho (KIFI) — More than 565 students are eligible to receive 581 degrees at University of Idaho’s 2022 Winter Commencement Ceremony Saturday, Dec. 10, in the ICCU Arena in Moscow.

Ceremonies begin at 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Full information for the commencement ceremony is available online HERE.

Students applied for 402 bachelor’s degrees, 146 master’s degrees, 24 doctorates, four specialist degrees and five juris doctorates. Thirty-three academic certificates are eligible for completion.

The new degrees bring the total number of degrees U of I has awarded to 139,005. A total of 130,199 students have received degrees from U of I.

U of I will award an Honorary Doctor of Education to Kevin D. Satterlee, the 13th president of Idaho State University. A native Idahoan from Priest River, Satterlee has served Idaho’s higher education system for over 20 years. He received a law degree at U of I and a bachelor’s in political science from Boise State University.

“We’re thrilled to award Kevin Satterlee an honorary doctorate from the University of Idaho,” U of I President Scott Green said. “Kevin is a tireless advocate for Idaho students, whether they’re in Pocatello, Moscow, Boise, or anywhere in between. Shortly after beginning his tenure at Idaho State, he established the President’s Leadership Council, working with Idaho’s colleges and universities to promote collaboration and improve efficiency. His deep ties in the state and his selfless leadership have helped make that group’s efforts successful.”

Heidi K. Gardner, best-selling author and distinguished fellow at Harvard Law School, will be the guest speaker. Gardner helped write more than 80 books, chapters, case studies and articles, including the newly released “Smarter Collaboration: A New Approach to Breaking Down Barriers and Transforming Work.”
